  • Best Of Stamina Records 2019

    I know that it's 2021, and that I'm a tad late, but there's a reason why I am discussing now the 2019 instalment of the legendary Stamina Records 'Best Of' compilation. A sad reason behind it. Stamina Records' webshop is to seize activity in a month's time! Please read the previous sentence correctly: the webshop stops, not Stamina Records. They will remain active. So nothing that major. Nothing to cry about. We will still get our Freeform from one of the finest (if not the finest) label in Freeform land. It's only shutting shop. Literally. And they are having a sale on, a bloody good one: up to 70% off! And me being Dutch, I had to purchase a few albums. I just had to. And maybe I'll get some more. I like a sale, me. So what did this cheapskate do? I bought each and every 'Best Of' digital CD. I just had to. A few years ago the label granted me a sneak preview to a few of those, and now I repay them by buying them all. Starting with the release from 2013 up to the 2020 edition. So I'm up to speed with all the music released from 2013 until 2020. And that's the main reason why I'm reviewing this instalment. I am a Freeform fanatic. I have been to a few parties, bought much merchandise over the years, and also bought a shit ton of CDs. But that all stopped after buying a new car: this did not come with a CD player. My dreams were shattered, so I uploaded them all onto a hard drive, and threw most of them away (only kept memorable ones and ones with autograph on it). But my new car HAS got a CD player. So I jumped the gun a bit. Could have saved all the thousands of CDs. Ah well, at least nothing is lost. But here we are, 2021. The world is fucked, and so am I. I was scrolling through my Facebook timeline, and saw the message posted by A.B .... the webshop is closing. I had to buy a few albums. And one of them is this one. An album filled with 15 tracks, made by the finest Freeform producers, and a special mix by A.B himself. A bit of scratching here and there, and technically superbly mixed together. What else could you wish for? If you want to, make sure you head over to Stamina Records' website, and see what money can buy you (for now)..... hurry the f*** up! A.B - Awaken (Intro Edit) Kounta Kulture - Edge Of The Universe Digital Commandos - Angels With Filthy Souls GERCORE - Legacy A.B & Kevin Energy - Samsara Kounta Kulture - Valhalla A.B & Substanced - Injustice A.B - Kielo (Digital Commandos Remix) Transcend - Domination (A.B & Synthwulf Remix) Finnbarr - Hidden In The Light (A.B & Cyrax Remix) Digital Commandos feat MC Cyx - Rockin' Up The Mic A.B - Alright (Fracus & Darwin Remix) A.B & Douglas - TIWWA Tamerax - I Got The Beeps Tamerax - PDS (WGS Instrumental) Yes mate. Freeform Heaven. 15 records + a mix by A.B himself. What else could you wish for? You know it makes sense to go to their store right now and purchase everything. And I mean everything! You need to hurry up, store closes soon. I am not going to repeat myself: if you miss out on this bargain, it's your own fault. The tracks are all fire. That's not something new: the tracks are made by legendary Freeform artists such as A.B himself, Kounta Kulture, Digital Commandos, Douglas, Tamerax, Kevin Energy, Substanced, and more. And some even got a remix treatment by producers such as Fracus & Darwin, Synthwulf, Cyrax, and Digital Commandos. Would you expect anything less than normal from Stamina Records? No, me neither. They always deliver high quality music, and have been a stable force in our community. If you are looking for DJ friendly records, you are in for a treat. But, if you are like me, you like a mix more, A.B's got your back. This has got everything you need. When I heard the first 'Best Of' album back in 2013, I got hooked. And now my collection is complete. Some might call it Freeform Heaven. And I do underline that with a big ass marker. It's heavenly. And if you like a bit of scratching too, A.B does his magic during the mix. Always impressed, that's what I am. I've never felt disappointed, and with this instalment Stamina Records have proven again that they are the very best label for Freeform music. Normally I would have a comment here and there about tracks I don't like, or don't like the quality of the mix. But it's all tight. Everything is perfect, literally perfect. And the track that highlights that to me is the track A.B made with Douglas. 'TIWWA'. Just love this duo. They always make it sound so amazing. Get it now! If you are late, you are late. And you will hate yourself. Don't say that we haven't warned you! Artist: Various Artists Genre/Style: Freeform CD Info: Best Of Stamina Records 2019 Length CD: +/- 2 hours Tracks: 15 (fifteen) + 1 Mix Label: Stamina Records Product Number: STMLP015 More Information: Stamina Records - Official Website

  • Drokz Tribute Mix By Execrate (2021)

    It's Tuesday. Terror day. Well, it isn't, but let's call it that anyway. Terror. We need more Terror music in our lives. And today I saw that Opa Drokz uploaded yet another new mix, but it did not contain a tracklist. But I was in the mood for some Drokz, if you catch my drift? Today's been a slow paced day, and I needed something fast, rough, and hard as fucking nails. Obviously you go to the grandaddy of them all: Drokz. I am adore this man and his passion and dedication. He's the focus of everything Hardcore and Terror related. He has embraced the lifestyle and the Dutch culture, which has now gone global. Well, I didn't mean to say it had only gone international today, but it is a global phenomena. It's everywhere, and thanks to artists as Drokz it is still alive and kicking. And he always brings in new music. He's unstoppable! So why am I talking about him if it's not the latest mix I'm reviewing? Well, Drokz did share a tribute mix, made by Execrate, which was made 2 months ago, and it's a 2 hour long mix, with only the hardest records money can buy. It's a good ass mix, if you are into Terror music. And if you do fancy Drokz' music, you will love this 2 hour-long madness mix. What do you get in those 2 hours? All Drokz made tracks. And there are 47 of them. Yes, you read that right: 47 of the finest Drokz tracks. But only the recent stuff, not the early early stuff. This is Drokz in the 21st century. Hard as tits, and fast as fuck. Really impressed with his direction, and his music always appeals to me. It speaks to me. Most of the records in this mix were made by Drokz himself, with a few noticeable exceptions: Deterrent Man, Akira, Mr Courage, The Vizitor, en Het Beest Van Neuk (who the fuck that might be). But the majority are Drokz made tracks, only made by him. And that's good. Sit back, and enjoy this 2 hour of pure Terror music by one of the leading names in the Terror scene. The Godfather of Terror. And if you've never heard of him, and came across this review by accident, please be advised: listeners discretion is advised. Because this mix is hard, really HARD. Drokz & Mr Courage - Get On Your Knees And Pray Drokz - Sneakerhead Drokz - Keeping It Rough Drokz - Satanic Man Spread Terror Drokz - I Am Alive Drokz - World Bass Music Drokz - Brand New Kickz Drokz - Phone Da Industry Drokz & Het Beest Van Neuk - Het Gaat Om De Energie Drokz - Killing The Sound Drokz - Much Damage Much Terror Drokz & Akira - The Club Crushers Drokz - The Understream Drokz - Labelled As An Outcast Drokz - Going To Hell With God Drokz - This Is Dedication Drokz & Mr Courage - Funky Drumming Drokz - On To The Next One Drokz - Weekend Drokz - My Shit Is Dope Drokz - You Should Understand Drokz - Keeping It Rough Drokz & Mr Courage - Busy On A Tempo Drokz - Henkie Lives On Drokz - Faggot Old School Stylio Drokz - DJs Don't Dance Drokz - I Love Drokz Drokz - I'm Gonna Rock Ya Drokz & The Vizitor - Do You Hear Me Drokz - No Compromise Drokz - Rock 2017 Drokz - Crisis Drokz - The Mind Drokz - Supervised Slashing Drokz - Edupaintion And Hisgory Drokz - Vicious (Scream All You Want) Drokz - Karma Drokz - Stamppot Met Gehaktbal Drokz - What Man Can Do Drokz & Deterrent Man - Beef With The Police Drokz - Riot For Music Videos Drokz - Only The Strong Survive Drokz - This Ain't No Disco Drokz - The Vietnam War Drokz - I Wanna Be A Terrorist Drokz - The Terrordome Drokz - Failure Seriously, this mix is hard as tits. Motherfucking hard. This shows how much Drokz rules the Terror scene. My God, all of these are dancefloor smashers. Well, dancefloor? Mosh pit generating anthems. You cannot dance like a normal person, you have to dance like a monkey on acid. Pure and unadulterated acid. And throw in some xtc pills, and there you have it: your feet are moving to the beat, your fists are raised high in the sky, and your mouth is filled with words such as 'more', 'harder', and 'yeah'. That's how I picture myself on the dancefloor, the next time I see Drokz. My God, I do miss hearing this man perform. Can anyone book him to come to London, please? If he does weddings, can he come to mine? Execrate's mix is a dope one. 2 hours of pure Drokz. And he's crammed in so many wicked anthems, such as 'Sneakerhead', 'Beef With The Police', 'Busy On A Tempo', 'This Is Dedication' and more. 47 awesome records by the leading figure in the Terror scene. You might like or dislike his own views, but you cannot deny that Drokz knows what to play for his audience of Terrorheads from all over the world. And Execrate has done a magnificent job, making this exquisite tribute mix. It slowly builds up, and the end is just like an orgasm. You are certainly in need of tissues once this mix is over. I've got only love and appreciation for Execrate, and admiration for Drokz. Especially after hearing 'Failure'. What a beast of a track! Drokz deserves so much more. No small stage anymore: a Drokz dedicated festival. And a statue in his hometown. And a public holiday for this living legend. Really want to order merchandise from the man himself, but seeing as I live in London, and walking around with Terrorheads on a shirt, might not be such a good idea lol. But it's not how you represent the music, it's what it makes you feel. And this mix was exactly what I needed to hear today! Thanks Execrate for this awesome fan mix, and Drokz for being who he is!

  • Happy Hardcore | Strictly 1996 | Mix 241

    Happy Monday everyone. Another week in paradise. Another hot day lies ahead, and especially a hot night. We are going to be stuck inside the house for yet another month. So, let's celebrate this by listening to some Happy Hardcore, eh. We might need some music to cheer us up. Nothing much is happening. So let's enjoy this brand spanking new mix by Raving Madness. The 241st instalment of his successful Hardcore mix series. I've reviewed a few mixes of him in the past, and the latest just grabbed my attention, after seeing the huge smiley face with blood. It's always a short 30 minute mix, with the finest Hardcore music. And today is 30 minutes of pure 1996 Happy Hardcore music. If you feel you need to hear more of 1996 and surrounding years, check out his Soundcloud page: he's got 240 other mixes you might appreciate. Can't believe these tunes are already 25 years old! Obviously everyone has got a different perception on what to call Happy Hardcore, but to me, what Raving Madness has used for this mix, is just right. This is what I call Happy Hardcore, this is the sound I grew up with. Cheesy from the start to the end. But in a strange way I do like it, and it makes me extremely happy. But I have to say that he's got a few really cheesy tracks for his 241st mix. You'll know what I mean once you have a butcher at the tracklist. So these are the 10 records he used for today's mix. Enjoy, and go back 25 years in time! Blue Zone - Too Beautiful (Happy Radio Edit) Bertocucci Feranzano & Tony Salmonelli - Higher Love The Fuck-Ups - Party Time Infernus - 7 Ways Solid Base & Devious Minds - All U Deejays Obliterator - Ruff To The Max (El Bruto Remix) Sandman - Can Can (Bounce Mix) English Muffin - Dum Dum Tails, Noizer & General Noise - Kickin' Bass Back 2 Bass - The beating Of My Heart (East Terminal String Mix) Wow. To start the mix with such an underrated anthem, is really something. Was it on Happy Hardcore 7 or 8? I do remember seeing it on one of those legendary albums. I have devoured these massively during the 90s. And I do miss this sound a lot. Oh God, I thought this mix would make me happier, but it has also made me nostalgic. I miss the 90s. 25 years ago these anthems were released, can you Adam and Eve it? Raving Madness' selection is really something else. Happy to the core. And I've forgotten a few of them. This mix has enlightened my enthusiasm for the happier sound a lot, and I will certainly start listening to the older CDs again. Come on, as many of you haters out there, the music was extremely dope. Not cool to acknowledge in the 90s that you loved Happy Hardcore, but it was part of our history, our culture. And I have embraced it since day one. And even 25 * 365 days later I can still say with pride that I'm a Happy Hardcore lover. Fuck it. So many unappreciated songs. Bertocucci Feranzano & Tony Salmonelli (a.k.a. DJ Buzz Fuzz)'s Higher Love is such a memorable tune. Hands in the air, and glowsticks everywhere. Those were the days. Buzz Fuzz ruled during the 90s, he was on top of everything. And the happier stuff he made was so damn dope. If you don't know, look up 'Daddy Snow'. Another wicked anthem. A fantastic mix. Thanks Raving Madness for yet another 30 minutes of nostalgia. Now I will listen to all the other mixes he has uploaded. I just have to. My craving for Happy Hardcore is seriously immense.
